Most Beautiful Places In Albania
1. ThethCentered in North Albania, this Jeep Safari places you in the heart of the national park of Theth. You’re free to explore the village, visit the waterfall or discover the ‘Blue eye’. If you’re looking for a deeper dive into Albanian lifestyle, you are in the right place.
2. ShëngjinShëngjin is the ideal harmony between the sea, the mountain and the city. The beach of ‘Rëra e hedhur’ is one of the best option to pass the vacation in this oasis of Adriatic sea.
3. KsamilKsamil, 17km south of Saranda, has three small, dreamy islands within swimming distance of shore and dozens of beachside bars and restaurants that open in the summer.
4. Llogara ParkIt offers good and fresh food and amazing nature and sightseeing. From the top of Llogara you can see the whole south Riviera. Located in the middle of the Llogara National Park, the road travels to over 1,000 meters above sea level and the scenery will take your breath away.
5. Blue Eye / Syri i KaltërReaching unknown depths, this blue hole in Albania’s Delvinë District is fed by an underground spring. Tourists travel from miles around for a glimpse of its natural beauty. Its name means “Blue Eye,” and it is mesmerizing to gaze into its portal.
6. ButrintThe ancient ruins of Butrint, 18km south of Saranda, are famed for their size, beauty and tranquility. They’re in a fantastic natural setting and are part of a 29-sq-km national park.
7. Apollonia Archaeological ParkBeautiful archaeological park where there is still digging going on by archaeologists. The park is located in Fier. The ancient ruins are beautiful ,also not to miss is the XII’th century monastery and the small museum.
8. Patok LagoonThe undiscovered secrets of Laç can be experienced only when you’re there. The panoramic view of the lagoon, the amazing food of the restaurants and a visit to the Church of Laç make your day a true exploration.
9. Koman LakeThe surface of the lake is perfectly still. The steep hills on either side and the high mountains beyond are empty of human life, save for the occasional lonely farmstead embedded in the hillside. There are no visible roads, no telephone wires to connect this place to the outside world. While on the ferry journey along Lake Koman in northern Albania, it’s not difficult to imagine you’re drifting through a landscape that has laid undisturbed for centuries.
10. ValbonaA wild, high, mountainous region inhabited by strong and fiercely independent people, the Malësi has for the history of Albania been the region which was never really conquered or subdued by the various waves of invaders during the last 2,000 years of Balkan history. The name “Valbona” is used to refer to the Valbona River, which in turn flows through the valley bearing its name, and a small village in the valley, as well the general area informally.
11. HimareHimare is a less busy beach town located a few hours’ drive north of Saranda. It’s a much less busy beach getaway than the likes of Saranda. The views are incredibly pretty and it’s the perfect place if you want to chill out by the beach for a few days. I highly recommend making a trip to the old part of Himare which is in the hills, next to the castle. From there you get incredible views of the Riveria and you also get to see a traditional village, it’s so pretty!
12. DhërmiTucked away in the foothills of the Acroceraunian Mountains, the picture-perfect village of Dhërmi lays claim to one of the most idyllic stretches of coast on the Albanian Riviera. The village boasts classic southern European architecture and a staggering 35 churches within its boundaries. Just south of Dhërmi’s main beach is the Pirate’s Cave; a natural cave cut into a perpendicular rock face.
